    I've noticed my RPMS will bounce a bit on really hot days, but nothing that has ever concerned me. My previous car I kind of destroyed the ECU and it would routinely bounce 2000 RPMS at lights, so maybe this is just such an improvement I don't really notice it.

    rev the piss outta it and get some of that carbon build up out......it'll probably idle a bit better then. also...have you removed the secondary air filter yet??

    Will, I have noticed NO improvement from the removal of the secondary (Charcaol) filter. Idels the same, Fuel Economy=same, seat-O-pants dyno=same.
    I agree with Gaget that the removal of the charcoal filter is unnessasary. :)

    Yeah...Mine didn't make any changes that I noticed either. I figure I reduced the weigh so it must be good (kidding)

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    my 4.0 seems to idle pretty damn smooth to me.... maybe its because i never let any carbon build up from constant babying and crappy gas;). :burnrubber:

    Mine is definitely smoother without the charcoal filter. There's just no question about that.

    1700 miles, all stock. 2nd filter still in. idles similar to my corvette. my camry i didnt know if it was running most of the time and my 4 runner was smooth too. just find it odd that it runs so rough when most are smooth.

    I agree with Roy about the rough idle. Not terrible but more noticeable than I expected from a new Toyota.

    Mine is an '09 DC LB Sport with about 700 miles.... any chance this will get better with more of a break in?

    6,000 miles and I know what you mean. Not enough to complain about but the 06 4Runner didn't seem to idle like the tacoma.

    My '09 AC SR5, 4 cyl. idled perfectly until I drove it 3,100 miles on a trip. Now it has a rough idle. Don't think I built up any carbon averaging 80-85 MPH the entire way.
